Experimental shapes such as planter pots and umbrella stands carried the Temuka name. The Planter Pots were hand thrown and then hand decorated, producing a glorious terracotta background to the bright foreground colours Whimsical designs such as “House” were well recieved.
In September 1999, Temuka tableware was chosen for the APEC leaders dinner held at the Auckland town hall. The APEC catering team commissioned a specially designed square plate for entrees, as well as using a dinner plate, and triangular plate fo desserts. Four hundred and ten of these specially crafted plates were produced in a matt black colour.
